Zlatni Pyasatsi Nature Park is a small but charming Nature Park in Bulgaria, covering just 13.2 square kilometers.
In 1943, the Park was established as a protected area with the goal of preserving and protecting important ecosystems, plant and animal species, and unique landscapes. Zlatni Pyasatsi is a designated Special Area of Conservation within the European network Natura 2000.
The Nature Park is situated approximately 17 kilometers northeast of Varna. The region stretches alongside the coastline, marking the western edge of the Golden Sands resort [Zlatni Pyasatsi], and continues northward to the settlement of Kranevo. Parks typically measure 9.2 km in length and 1.2 km in width. Chiplak Tepe sits at an impressive elevation of 269.3 meters above sea level, with the surrounding area averaging at 110 meters.
In 1915, the idea of establishing a park in the region was born. However, it wasn’t until 3 February 1943 that the Ministry of Agriculture and State Property officially designated 2.4 square kilometers of the State Forest “Hachuka” as the People’s Park Zlatni pyassatsi [Golden Sands]. The Park is the second park in Bulgaria to receive official designation, after Nature Park Vitosha.
Little did anyone know back in 1943 that the declaration of the Nature Park Zlatni pyasatsi [Golden Sands] would pave the way for the development of one of Bulgaria’s biggest sea resorts just 13 years later. The Golden Sands resort is also referred to as the Nature Park – Zlatni Pyasatsi.
